Stamping With Perfect Pearls Tutorial

Hello everyone! This is Kate and today I would like to share a fun technique with you to be used on any card or mixed media project. I love stamping with all sorts of different products. In this tutorial we will learn how to stamp with Perfect Pearls.

First, gather your supplies. (Shown Above) You will need:
Red Rubber Designs Well-Defined Stamps
Red Rubber Designs Rustic Chic Paper
Embossing Ink or Perfect Pearls Medium
Heat Tool
Clean Paint Brush
Water Spritzer
Perfect Pearls

Cover your stamp with embossing ink or Perfect Pearls Medium and stamp on paper
Continue this process until the entire piece of paper is covered.

The paper should look like this.

Cover the embossed area of the paper with Perfect Pearls. Use the paint brush to tap the sides of the paper to remove the excess powder.

Once the excess powder is removed, heat the area with a heat gun until the embossed image begins to show up. Take a paint brush and dust it over the image to make sure all the excess powder is removed. The image can be spritzed with a bit of water to set the image.

Now you have a beautiful and shimmery background that can be layered on any card or project.

You can find this tutorial as a free download at Red Rubber Designs. Thank you for stopping by! Don't forget to visit the Red Rubber Designs Store for all your stamping needs.
